This show has been commercially released as " Europe '72: The Complete Recordings - All The Music Edition"
I haven't hear anything form Europe 72 that isn't amazing. The band were truly hitting a peak. Every tune just sparkles with energy and passion.
It's hard to pick out favourite performances but the China->Rider and Big x stand out. The show stopper would easily be the DS->Sugar Mag->Caution. I personally prefer the Dark Star from 4/14 but it's apples and oranges - both have a different vibe. Listen to both, I doubt you'll be disappointed!
Thanks, again to SirMick for his hard work on bringing this gorgeous sounding piece of music to the archive.

This is the Grateful Dead in every las ounce of their power & glory. Signature versions of China > Rider, Saturday Night, Ramble On Rose, BRR Blues, J.B.Goode and an uptempo He's Gone. Pigpen's tunes are heartmelting. Stuff of legend.
I'm getting periodic little bursts of static. Anyone else? Maybe it's just how I have my SoundStudio software setup....
If you're looking for an outstanding Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks), look no further...

Great sound. Excellent show. The closest I'll ever get to that 72' sound considering I was born in 1973. Thanks Sir Mick!!!
Subject: Europe '72
I just listened to a '71 and it's remarkable how much they improved in '72. The sound quality on this is really good and so is the mix. Awesome job and many thanks SirMick! It's very much like Europe '72 (maybe some of these performances are on the CD?). Man, why didn't they put that Dark Star on the album ("sorry boys, management says it's too damn long"). I totally agree with oh_uh_um_ah…good point about Pigpen and Keith. I'm surprised that heads aren't freaking about this show!!! It's easily one of the best shows I've ever heard and it goes well with wine and probably other intoxicants as well.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live" at the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen, Denmark April 17, 1972
Excellent Mix, Stereo Hi-Fi Sound. 22 "In-the-Pocket Performances". A "MUST HAVE" show.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD collection. Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it now or you'll be sorry.
Thank GOD SirMick is a perfectionist. This show is a "WORK OF ART". Thank you SirMick.
A terrific "CHINA CAT SUNFLOWER - I KNOW YOU RIDER".
On most songs Pigpen is playing organ while Keith is playing piano.
It's nice to hear Pigpen play, he had a great "sound". A Hammond B3 with a Leslie....
I enjoy hearing Pigpen and Keith playing together. Not many shows around with both of these great performers together. That's what makes this show oh so "Very Special".
Eat, Drink, be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love.
PS: For the PC the Internet Archive recommends RealPlayer for streaming and downloading.
